We stuff this full of Cascade, Saaz and Rewaka hops. Fresh hoppy hello in your gob with a polite bitterness at the end.

ThirstyBird (2602) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2016
On cask at Ravensgate in Ramsgate. Pours a deep golden color with a nice cream colored head. The smell is grain, mild citrus and some fruit. The taste is toasted grain, citrus ending very dry and crisp. The body is light+ with light carbonation action.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2015
One-third pint, cask at Beer Rebellion, Gipsy Hill. Filmy layer over a clear golden body. Smell of fruity hops and grainy malts. Grapefruit flavours with backdrop of peach and bread. Herbal hops to a fine bitter ending. Easy to drink. Satisfying (London, 28.11.2015).

Fra cask på Beer Rebellion Gipsy Hill 28 Nov 15. Delt med Rune. Lysegulbrun. Filmskum. Ferskenaroma. Smaken røde plommer. Svakt syrlig etter hvert. Behagelig bitter avslutning.

From London Beer Market and drunk at home. Clear gold thin white head. Malty flavour for a golden beer, some sweetish honey. Some soft citrus hops. Rather drinkable to be honest. Bit over carbonated. Yes sweetish which is rather nice and then a good bitter lasting finish. Good.

imdownthepub (13232) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Cask conditioned at Brighton Beer Dispensary, Brighton. Hazy amber with slight head. Well, I expected hops from the pump clip, but I never noticed any other than a vague vegetable note. There was a caramelized sweetness, perhaps a herby note. Quite dull really.

Scopey (12507) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
Cask gravity dispense at Beer Rebellion. It pours golden yellow with a small white head. The nose is earth, white bread, grass, faint herbal, wood and resin. The taste is earth, straw, white grape, grassy bitterness and spice with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Nice level of bitterness. Decent hopped-up session ale.

Gravity pour at Beer Rebellion. Pours a light golden colour. Slight b.o. aroma alongside some honey and a bit of dough. Light body, very little carbonation. It's got a touch of caramel, some pine, a little lemon, nice enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask @ The Fox, E8. The pour’s a slightly hazy pale straw color with a small white head. The aroma’s straw, angel food cake, a bit of white grape and canned pear juice. The taste is white grape juice concentrate, a bit of sugar cookie sweetness. Soft pale malt accents. Soft grassy bitterness on the finish. Light body, soft carbonation. Well made stuff, but not that particularly compelling.
